Windows Phone 7 Marketplace hits 25,000 apps milestone
Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has passed an important milestone today. The store now boasts over 25,000 apps, a figure its ammassed in just 8 months.
The figures aren’t officially from Microsoft however; they come courtesy of app tracking service WindowsPhoneAppList, who put the exact number at 25,076 apps. While fellow app tracker WP7Applications puts the number slightly lower at 24,878, it’s still a strong number considering the relative youth of the service.
According to the stats, most of the apps are gaming-orientated, closely followed by eBooks. Of the 25,000+ apps, a little over half are available for free.
While their still a long way off from catching the number of Android apps available, let alone the 450,000-odd iOS apps available via Apple’s iTunes, they’re still respectable figures, with the WP7 store growing at a rate of around 3,100 apps a month.
Pity then that hardly anyone has a WP7 phone. Perhaps the Nokia WP7 handsets launching later this year will help a little in that regard.

25,000 apps, you know, this number is very impressive, but campared with IOS app, that is nothing. Apple use only 480 days to reach the 100,000 apps. so, i am so worried that Nokia now is planning to rely they whole life on Windows phone. competiton is not in the same level.
